UNC's McDonald, Bullock practice, should play Wednesday

North Carolina reserves Leslie McDonald and Reggie Bullock both practiced Monday and Tuesday, and should play Wednesday at Miami, a team spokesman said.

Reserve Justin Watts, however, still hasn't practiced since he sprained his right ankle last Tuesday against Clemson, and is doubtful against the Hurricanes.

McDonald, who is averaging 7.7 points off the bench, has been sidelined since the Jan. 16 game at Georgia Tech, when he bruised his back and sustained a lung injury.

Bullock, who scored a career-high 18 points against Clemson, did not practice for five days because of swelling in his left knee.
